Jonas and Chopra exchanged vows in a Western, Christian ceremony at the five-star heritage hotel Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur on Saturday.

Pre-Wedding Ceremonies: An estimated $61,000
The pre-wedding ceremonies, including the Haldi, Sangeet and Mehendi, were supposed to take place at the Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur but were later moved to the palace for security reasons, according to local reports. An official at the fort told India’s Daily News and Analysis that the catering for three ceremonies costs roughly around Rs 43 lakh.

The bride and groom traveled to India in late November to prepare for the wedding. To get from New York to Jodhpur, a person must take a minimum of two flights, usually stopping in either the Indian cities of Mumbai or New Delhi. A second layover, if applicable, is usually in London. A one-way trip from New York to Jodhpur takes more than a full day.
“People will need vacations after this wedding,” Chopra joked to Vogue.
